      Restore the flexibility for the new 3 references · ec36a2b0
      Zoe Liu authored
      For the experiment of EXT_REFS, removed the previous special handling
      on the new last 3 references, i.e. LAST2_FRAME, LAST3_FRAME, and
      LAST4_FRAME, at the decoder, so that these new last references are
      treated the same way as the other 3 references (LAST_FRAME,
      GOLDEN_FRAME, and ALTREF_FRAME). Encoder changes have been made
      accordingly to realize this flexibility.

      Speed up angle search in intra mode selection · d7c8bc77

      Estimate angle histogram using gradient analysis, then skip those
      angles that are unlikely to be chosen.
      
      On ext-intra experiment, turning off filter-intra modes:
      for all-key-frame setting, computation overhead is reduced
      by about 40%, coding gain dropped from +2.08% to +1.96% (derflr);
      with kf-max-dist=150, computation overhead is reduced
      by about 60%, coding gain dropped from +0.58% to +0.49% (derflr).

      Reduce transform options for ext-tx experiment · 56ab215d
      Debargha Mukherjee authored
      Reduces the transform optons for INTRA as well as INTER when
      transform size is 16x16 to not use any of the DSTs.
      Thus, a total of 10 options are used for 16x16, while 4x4
      and 8x8 still uses 17 options.
      
      derflr/hevchd actually improves a little, while hevcmr drops
      a little.
      
      About 10% speed improvement.

      New interpolation experiment · 85514c40
      Debargha Mukherjee authored
      Adds a new interpolation experiment.
      
      Improves entropy coding to send the filter type only if
      the motion vectors have subpel components.
      Adds one new 8-tap smooth filter, and tweaks the others.
      
      derflr: +0.695%
      hevcmr: +0.305%
      
      About 5% encode slowdown. No visible impact for decoding.
      
      Also makes the interpolation framework flexible to support both
      strictly interpolating filters as well as non-interpolating
      filters that filter integer offsets. This is mainly for
      further experimentation and if not found useful the code will
      be removed.

      ext-intra experiment · be3559ba
      hui su authored
      Currently there are two parts in this experiment: extra directional intra
      prediction modes and the filter intra modes migrated from the nextgen branch.
      
      Several macros are defined in "blockd.h" to provide controls of the experiment
      settings. Setting "DR_ONLY" as 1 (default is 0) means we only use directional
      modes, and skip the filter-intra modes; "EXT_INTRA_ANGLES" (default is 128)
      defines the number of different angles we want to support; setting
      "ANGLE_FAST_SEARCH" as 1 (default is 1) means we use fast sub-optimal search
      for the best prediction angle, instead of exhaustive search. The fast search
      is about 6 times faster than the exhaustive search, while preserving about
      60% of the coding gains.
      
      With extra directional prediction modes (fast search), we observe the following
      code gains (number in parentheses is for all-key-frame setting):
      derflr +0.42%  (+1.79%)
      hevclr +0.78%  (+2.19%)
      hevcmr +1.20%  (+3.49%)
      stdhd  +0.56%
      Speed-wise, about 110% slower for key frames, and 30% slower overall.
      
      The gains of filter intra modes mostly add up with the gains of directional
      modes. The overall coding gain of this experiment:
      derflr +0.94%
      hevclr +1.46%
      hevcmr +1.94%
      stdhd  +1.58%

      Incorporate flexible tx type and tx partition in RD scheme · 4b594d3d
      Jingning Han authored
      This commit hooks up the rate-distortion optimization system to
      fully exploit recursive transform block partition and multiple
      transform type. The compression performance of the two experiments
      largely adds up. For derf set, ext-tx provides additional 2.1%
      coding gains on top of the gains due to recursive transform block
      partition (0.69%).

      vp10: don't reset contextual skip flag if block has no coefficients. · a5d930e4
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      The implicitly changed value would be used for contextualizing future
      skip flags of neighbour blocks (bottom/right), which is certainly not
      what was intended. The original code stems from vp8, and was useful
      in cases where coding of the skip flag was disabled. In vp9, the skip
      flag is always coded. The result of this change is that for bitstream
      parsing purposes, decoding of the skip flag becomes independent of
      decoding of block coefficients.
      
      See issue 1014.
